Whether you are buying a ladies watch or a men’s watch it is important to determine if this watch will be used for everyday use or for special occasions.
For example, a Cartier watch is a classic luxurious watch that might be more appropriate with business and cocktail attire.
If you are purchasing ladies watch you really have to determine if you want a stainless steel, white gold, yellow gold, platinum or leather band.
A leather band is more cost effective, but a bracelet band is more stylish and feminine. You also have to determine what the face and dial would be.
If you want a diamond watch the cost would be much higher.
If you want to keep your costs down you can purchase the stainless steel band with no diamonds.
The Tank series by Cartier is a quartz watch with sapphire crystals that normally retails for $2,500.
It has a stainless steel band, but if you were to get the gold or platinum band then the price would be significantly higher, but this is another style choice that you have.
